It Isn'T As It Was - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
Anything broken can be fixed.
If not replaced to forget regret.
Things to break,
Should not be worshipped to cause heartache.
No one should devote their lives to things.
But a making attempts to heal and mend,
Even after forgiveness one gives to begin...
Depends on that relationship one has treasured.
Although one's memories may haunt,
With them never ending.
'It isn't as it was.'
Give it time.
Time makes all the difference.~
'That may be true,
I still can't believe what I allowed you to do.'
~Give it time.
Whatever is kept in your mind will fade.
One day whatever I did will go away.~
'But the difference of time,
Doesn't change in my mind...
I find has escalated.
And the doing done remains the same.'
~You have made it worse than what it is.
And it isn't as it was.~
'That's what I have been saying.
And I can not heal to mend to pretend,
That a doing of what was did not exist.'
